Forever 21 crop top (option) and sunglasses (option, option); ℅ Lulu’s skirt, old (option, option); Urban Outfitter’s hat, old (option); Target sandals.
My mama is here this week and that’s means one of three things:
1) I have a shopping partner to help me corral the kids and also bounce ideas off of while we browse! She tells me when a top makes me look pregnant (bad), and I lead her to things that will make her look awesome. She’s my honesty barometer and will let me know if I look awful, or if I have to buy something because I look really good in it. On another note, I’ve since acquired a lot more stuff since she got here two days ago;)
Note: We also found out we have the same EXACT pineapple tank top from Target and I’m just waiting for the day we become THAT mother daughter duo in matching outfits.
2) I have a built in, at home babysitter that allows my husband and I to go on a date (!) for the first time in five months. Driving to dinner with him, in an open sided Jeep with the wind whipping my hair and the sun shining in my eyes has been one of my favorite moments. We ate at the most incredible, all locally sourced, restaurant, then went downtown and sampled artisan beers and watched all the hipster teenagers walk around. Kids are funny these days, hmmm? Are raccoon tails on belts really a thing?
On the other side of the date night coin, I get to go on a date with my mama and finally see “A Fault in Our Stars,” so, that’s awesome, too.
3) Finally, this week with my mom means tons of beach and pool days, where the kids swim for hours and she and I take turns reading People magazines. We have a lot of long, drawn out discussions on celebrities, in which we know way too many details about their personal lives. Perfection.
Tell me, what do you like to do with your mom? Does she live close, or far away like mine?
